Ceramic welding provides lasting repairs with no furnace shutdown; replacing lost refractory, protecting areas of corrosion and erosion, preventing furnace atmosphere impinging structural steel work and sealing open expansion joints. Ceramic welding can be done internally or externally, the best results are gained internally due to the higher temperatures and achieving the most effective sealing and filling of voids and open joints. The weld repair is effective immediately after application with no shrinkage and full bonding to the substrates stopping the formation of Rat-holing. The unrivalled sealing ability of ceramic welding, when combined with conventional masonry repairs, can provide one of the most efficacious repair systems available.
INSPECTION OF FURNACE BY ENDOSCOPY AND VIDEO MONITORING
Regular endoscope inspections recording the condition of the furnace superstructure are an essential part of PROCESS MONITORING, allowing furnace maintenance planning and avoiding an OPERATE UNTIL BREAKDOWN system.
NOSCO ASIA is a specialist in providing services of hot repair to the glass manufacturing industry in Asia. The growth of the NOSCO ASIA was started in 2010.
Our major services are Furnace Inspections with photographic reports; consultation on furnace repair and a variety of hot furnace repair techniques. Leading these is a process known as ‘Ceramic Welding’ which allows furnace refractories to be repaired and restored during normal operation. Furnace inspections are aided by the use of water-cooled endoscopes which allow wide angle and oblique viewing of furnace interiors.
NOSCO ASIA is lead by skilled engineers combining: glass making experience; the most experience in the delivery of effective furnace inspections; the most experience of the delivery of ceramic welding repairs, from repair design through logistics to repair completion.
Since early 2010 till 2015, Nosco Asia has undertaken more than 200 ceramic welding repairs at glass melting furnaces in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, South Korea, China and Middle East regions (including United Arab Emirate).
